MY DESIGNER PAPER DRESS

I saw a d├ęcor magazine and a lady had made dresses full size out of paper and I decided to try it with designer paper.
It kind of works, not perfect, but it got me thinking you can do anything with paper.  It is 21 inches long used one sheet 12x12 for the skirt and the 2nd sheet 12x12 for the top and straps.  I used a dinner plate to shape the sides and the top front of the top and the shoulders I cut down the centre of the paper 4 inches and folded it back.  Using the reverse of the designer paper which created a feature.  Cut off 1 inches from the skirt and reversed that too with a little crochet lace in between.   Pool party seam binding was the best match.  Why don't you try it, it was fun
